The right balance between isolation and connection.

I want to be on my own, but able to contact others if I need to (or if they need me) in a way that doesn't interrupt anyone's flow.

That translates to working from home (or having my own office), keeping my own hours whenever possible and having good tools for conferencing/screen-sharing.

A good music/entertainment system.

Anything from decent headphones and a collection of music to a TV or dedicated monitor for backgrounding something comfortable that doesn't require too much brainpower, like episodes of things I've watched loads of times before (Columbo and the 70's version of The Incredible Hulk are currently my jam).

Well-stocked kitchen

I don't want to run out of coffee or be thinking about where I could go to get lunch.

In fact, my ideal working environments would be the bunker from Lost, the compound from Archive 81 or perhaps the Overlook Hotel from The Shining.

My ideal work environment:

  • Work at home
  • Hot drink on left
  • Smartphone docked on right
  • A good headphone with lo-fi or hype music
  • Lights off and monitor backlight on
  • Mic and camera for daily meetings
  • Confortable chair
  • Team connected on discord

Concisely: Coffee + Dark + Music

Probably the ability of switching between working from home and at the office.
A good sound system at home, a good headphone at the office. And a lot of coffee

Home with some good music on it helps me concentrate. I know someone can relate.
